    Fighting continued for a fifth straight day on Wednesday at the largest Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon.

    At least seven people were killed as factions exchanged fire in the crowded Ain al-Hilweh camp in the country's south.

    Speaking to Al Jazeera's Imtiaz Tyab in Sidon, Yacoub Sarraf, Lebanese defence minister, said: "I do not honestly believe that the unrest that we experience is exclusively linked to any Lebanese legislative issue."
